It is not exactly over the river and through the woods to Grandma's house, but the Quadratec sponsored Obstacle Course at this weekend's 21st-annual PA Jeeps All Breeds Show in York, PA will definitely provide a fun test for those looking to challenge their ride.

Whether your Jeep is bone stock, or a massively lifted trail wrecker, the Quadratec Obstacle Course has specially designed sections to get every type of Jeep off the pavement, a little dirty, and keep everyone entertained.

All without having to keep an eye out for that annoying wolf.

“It’s really a fun thing to watch, when all those Jeeps are all lined up and ready to hit the course,” says Quadratec Outside Events Coordinator Craig Jaros. “The course is one of the more entertaining things we do during the year, and it’s important for us as well because we love seeing these products we sell in action on all the Jeeps out there.”

All Jeeps will be inspected upon entry to the course, Jaros said, to ensure everyone’s safety.  The course opens noon Saturday through 5 PM for registration and riding, and 8 AM Sunday through 2:30 PM.  Cost for the obstacle course is $30 per day, which also includes access to an RTI Ramp to measure your vehicle's suspension, frame, and tire compression flexibility.

Other events during the All Breeds Jeep Show weekend include Jeep safety, recovery, and driving demonstrations, a Jeep Show & Shine, vendor/manufacturer sales section, family activity area, the RTI ramp, and a raffle with over $20,000 in prizes.

All proceeds from the raffle benefit the York County Veterans Association.

Quadratec will also, once again, have fully stocked booth at the show's sales section where customers can ask product questions, talk shop, and take advantage of show discounts.

“It is just another way for us to show we aren’t just voices on a phone, or some impersonal website,” Jaros said.  “We’re Jeep fanatics too and these events are just as fun for us.”
